    Yeah, I tried pulling the rims off a 10 gallon once and I cracked it, the glass is too thin I guess. But I also didn't use the heat gun to melt the frame/silicone a bit like I did when pulling the rims off my 40 gallon cube mod. I just tried to use the utility knife to separate glass and frame and pull... I got the bottom off but when I went after the top frame I snapped the front pane.

    That was my thought - get rid of it now while you only have a few bits. I hate that stuff!

    Do you mind if I ask how much it cost making a tank like this?

    I've always wanted to do something small, but also do it well like you've done. I tried a 10 gallon planted tanked a few years ago and failed miserably. It was ugly, hard to clean, and not very interesting. I bought everything for it at Wal Mart... which didn't have to be bad, but I bought the cheapest of everything they had. THAT was bad.


    Yours looks gorgeous!

    I saw small tanks like this one at wall mart for under 30$ it would cost more probably for the sand and stones and plants than it would for the tank.
